A friend in need. As they say: “a friend in need is a pain in the arse”. This is not, heaven forfend, something you’d ever say about a lawyer, of course.

Counsel is an advisor, won’t usually collect your rubbish, and is best not confused with (the) council, from whom you are unlikely to get an enforceability opinion, and who often won’t collect your rubbish either, even though that’s what you pay it rates to do.

Nor should you confuse an actual counsel with a general counsel, even though the latter is meant to be a grown up version of the former.
